Fetty Wap stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform his massive hit "Trap Queen." He was in good company, as most of the musical guests on the show are, with The Roots bringing some extra Philadelphia flavor to the rap song.

The performance was Fetty Wap's late-night debut, HotNewHipHop points out. The rapper certainly didn't need the gig to bring the song to a wider audience - "Trap Queen" hit number three on the Billboard Hot 100 following its release last April. Check out the performance below. 

Fetty Wap's new tune has been given the remix treatment by Guccie Mane and Azealia Banks recently. Drake even reworked the New Jersey rapper's new song "My Way."

In February, the rapper spoke to The Boombox and promised fans plenty great music to come. 

"When you really work hard for something that you genuinely and truly love, and you don't want it to fail, it's a good feeling to see it do good," he said. "Nothing but greatness is coming from this for me. I tell everybody, this isn't even my best song. This is just the breakout for Fetty Wap. There's going to be a lot more coming, but I'm so proud of that song. I'm proud of my engineer, proud for RGF. Without the energy and the people that's around me, that song wouldn't be what it was. If the song was a lie, you'd be able to tell."

Other artists are catching on to Wap's talent. The rapper has been making guest appearances on select tracks since the start of the new year including DJ SpinKing's "Dope Boy," Baauer's "Promises" and Rich the Kid's "Keep It 100."
